My last blog (that was lost) on this topic was longer; hopefully this version will make sense ...
We are roleplaying in the most unique world i've seen in the 'net'. We have races that are more unique than anywhere else. Can someone please explain to me why everyone is trying to twist races in order to create unique PCs?
This is not just about the akalak, but about all the races. We have 4 armed freaks, bat winged demons, mad cannibals, undead parasites, and a dimented seal mix that took one deranged soul to come up with We play in a setting that is one part fantasy world, one part wild wild west, and part post holocaust. We have deities running around the surface of the world and actually taking part in the shaping of the world instead hiding out in the heavens. We have a most original magic and gnosis setting that is bar none.
I might understand more if we were a game world that had been in existance for many years with hundreds of players logging in and posting daily. In such a world the races and character concepts would be well saturated within game play. But we do not have this in Mizahar. We do not have hundreds of players posting daily and we haven't been around but for a few months.
We have a group of creators who spent a long time making sure this world had ample opportunities for all types of playing styles. They created races that should provide months and years of incredible character development along with endless story/adventure possibility. In this environment alone, you are unique! There is no one playing anything like you already.
Give the game a chance and at least play the races as they were designed before going off the deep in with wild twists and turns so you can play a race that is nothing like the way the race was intended. Seriously, this game is so new there is no baseline in existance to even know yet how the race would play out. Try it! Embrace it!...
